Edwin wanted fair compensation for everyone. We all need it due to sin and death being our enemy, since Adam rebelled .Ro 5:12 We have perfect compensation ,the exact equal, a perfect man, Jesus shed blood bought back what Adam lost. The fact that Jesus is ruling in the heavenly Kingdom government, we know compensation is in order through the resurrection. Edwin will return in good health to be reunited with his family. John 5:28,29 Justice will prevail to restore paradise earth -wide. What a relief when God brings to ruin those ruining the earth. Jesus promised that the meek will inherit the earth. Eccl 1:4 promises that the earth will endure forever. Please be comforted ,JW.org ,”Enjoy Life Forever” Love and Prayers, Sandy Wirfs

We're so sorry. So many fond memories of Edwin.How much ne loved his garden, and would share his bounty. Every year he would grow a huge zucchini for me to stuff "Italian" style. He will be missed by everyone who knew him.
